A wink from a pervert, a pick-up note left in a tip jar and some drunk who yells “love what you’re doing darl, but do you mind turning it down a bit”.
Set over a single evening, Elizabeth (starring Lisa Crawley, with special guests) features original indie-pop songs and true stories drawn from late night stints playing piano in hidden hotel bars across the world. Bullet Heart Club (Daffodils) collaborates with celebrated songwriter, musician and actress Lisa Crawley to create an intimate work about what it feels like to be the equivalent of musical wallpaper.
Crawley has opened for the likes of John Mayer, Jools Holland, Simply Red, Paul Weller and has played alongside music legend Tim Finn. She has also arranged and performed original works with the Auckland Symphony Orchestra. However, none of that is half as intimidating as opening up to audiences about what’s really going on inside her head when calling song requests and playing for tips.
"The storytelling is flawless - stunning fragments of original music and song - an exquisite show."
Australian Arts Review
"Magnificent storytelling and songwriting - a profoundly intimate cabaret - never misses a beat." Weekend Notes
